Sky Sports have confirmed that Tottenham are now in talks with AC Milan over a move for Newcastle target Krzysztof Piatek.
The Polish international has been regularly linked with a potential loan move to St James’ Park over the past week, with both the Chronicle and the Athletic confirming our interest in the striker, however it seems our hopes of signing him on loan are fading.
Sky Sports insist that talks are ‘not at an advanced stage’ and that ‘no formal offer’ has arrived from Spurs as of yet, but news of Jose Mourinho’s interest could be ominous – especially after news that Harry Kane will be out until April following surgery on his hamstring.
The Sun claim Tottenham have agreed a ‘£28m’ fee for the striker and will sign him in the next 48 hours, however Sky Sports claim their move for the 24-year-old is still in the early stages.
That said, it feels like this may be out of our reach now.
After all, he’s now receiving interest from Mourinho and a ‘top 4’ side in the knockout stages of the Champions League – so any move to join a potential relegation battle on Tyneside may no longer appeal.
